The patient is a 17-year-old male. He has got injuries and fractures of the head and neck in an accident some days ago. There is a pain in the head and neck. He can move his hands and legs. He is conscious and can talk. He is getting irritated due to a tight collar in the neck. I have attached all the reports. Please check.
I have gone through the attachments (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The patient has second neck bone fracture along with head injury with small hemorrhages (areas of bleeding) in the brain. He requires surgery for neck bone fracture which can be done only after brain injury is settled. Until the surgery is done, he needs to wear the hard collar on the neck. That is a must. Only after the neck surgery, he can remove the collar. I hope this helps.
Thank you doctor,
Are there any chances of swelling in the head? In case of swelling, what should be the treatment? Is there any other treatment other than neck surgery?
